How long do you think it’d take to “explore” Chicago? Have opportunity to work remote from US and would love to travel from city to city maybe every year or every 6 months and wondering if a year is enough time to get a good experience out of Chicago
We are looking to hire some great Sales experts on our team. Great WLB, remote and competitive pay. Please DM me if you are interested.
Is West Coast consulting life during WFH the worst possible scenario right now, especially if you have a crappy team? I have clients/3rd party vendors/fellow team members in all time zones in the US + Western & Eastern Europe. My email starts blowing up by 3am, and we have senior managers on our team in the East coast that work until 2AM EST. The only way this could be worse is if I lived in Hawaii LOL "It's about points scored, not minutes played"
Okay I’m going to say it if hasn’t been said before: I want the option to go back to the office now. I get some of you have kids or prefer wfh but I can’t stand it. I hate being cramped up and some people also live with toxic family members. We should make it optional for those who want/need to come back
Actually am getting pretty comfortable with this WFH arrangement. dont wanna jinx it 😬😬😬

Any tech recruiters in here? My wife has just completed her MS in Cybersecurity and has been working in UHC for 10 years, currently a research analyst. She has been literally carrying every department she has been promoted to with the highest reviews. She’s yet to break the ceiling even with a BA in Healthcare Admin.. So, she is hoping to find an opportunity that merges Cybersecurity and healthcare. What opportunities do you guys have either remote or in middle Georgia?
I think my firm is going to be moving towards global flexibility regarding work from home. They won't force us to live in certain cities with offices. Where in the US is there a beach or beach town that gets all four seasons? Is such a thing possible? I love the ocean, but Fall is my favorite season.

Anyone get reverse jet lag? I've been flying Mon-Thursday coast to coast for the past 3 years.. that when I get the random WFH week, my sleep schedule is totally screwed up more than normal.

👋🏼 A little WFH cuteness

Remind me what it’s like working for a firm where people know how to use technology? Nobody at my firm knows how to use zoom. They don’t know how to share a screen. So they use their phone camera and it’s lopsided and shaky.

Afraid of my chase account being closed. If you were to transfer UR Points and had no option otherwise, what/where would you transfer your points? Approx 200,000 UR points, not the most but don't wanna lose them haha
Let's raise our glasses to corporate cards, a month of PTO, and rapid advancement. Cheers to public accounting.
Health question: Does anyone else suffer from nerve pain in their butt/hips from sitting all day? My research tells me it’s piriformis pain. It means my sit bones are irritating my butt muscle, which irritates my sciatic nerve. It can be excruciating and hurt even when I stand. I bought a fancy seat cushion for my office chair, and I have a standing desk. Nothing helps. The pain has been around for about a month. Anyone else?? What did you do?
Fun fact that consultants will appreciate: The weight of the Liberty Bell equals the number of billable hours in the year. 2,080 lbs. Can anyone else “wow” us with a fun fact?

I really wish it were possible as a Senior to take a "quiet" or remote day every week and focus on work uninterrupted. I get that it would be a challenge for staff/mgrs but think it would be worth it.
